Post Sale Update: After being relisted several times, the Survivor sold for $2,450 after 17 bids on eBay.

Built by Bob Cecchini on an Arlen Ness frame, “The Survivor” was the cover bike for the July 1974 issue of Custom Chopper thanks to cool features like forced induction, one piece body/gas tank, and “progressive one-pedal brakes.” It has since been the victim of 42 years of aging – so are you going to be the one to bring it back to life?

The seller says he/she has all the original parts, though nothing is mentioned about the forced induction. What’s the best call here – restore it or leave the paint as is as a record of history?
